17 & 18 July 2020: “ANNIE JR” – The Musical (In the Island Hall)
We are proud to introduce you to the young members of the Alderney Theatre Group.
For their first public performance , the young thespians have chosen the musical “Annie Jr” (based on Thomas Meehan’s book “Little Orphan Annie”) with music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charni and has been performed on Broadway.
The famous Broadway musical “Annie Jr” is based on Thomas Meehan’s book “Little Orphan Annie”. (Music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin) and the cast range in age from 8 to 16.
The Alderney Theatre Group and everybody involved with the production is absolutely delighted that, under the eased restrictions of Phase 5, the performances can now go ahead. (performances were initially scheduled for end March but had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic)
Rehearsals will start again before the end of this month. Their mentors and producers are Maria Collier and Maxine Simeone, with help from Nick Collier, Michele Hutchinson, Liz Sumner and Ronnie Cairnduff and support from the rest of the Alderney Theatre Group committee.
There will be three performances in the Island Hall: Friday 17th July at 6:30pm and Saturday 18th July at 2:00pm and 6:30pm.
Tickets remain £5 (£2.50 for under 18’s) and will go on sale at Shirley’s in Victoria Street from 27 June. However, everybody who has purchased tickets for the previous show is asked to return these to Shirley’s before Friday 26 June in exchange for new tickets, before the remaining tickets are released to the public. Thank you.
